Kids Book of Canada's Railway
- Softcover48 pages, full colour
November 7, 1885, marked the completion of one of the longest, most expensive, most challenging engineering feats in the world - the Canadian Pacific Railway. A ribbon of steel now united Canada from east to west.
It took 30 000 workers less than five years to cross the wild land. This is the story of Canada's first transcontinental railway and the thousands of people who made the dream of a united Canada a reality.
This is also a look at the freight trains, school trains, troop trains and passenger trains that helped shape a country, the people who worked and rode on them and what our railway system looks like today.
The full colour illustrations are beautifully done and will captivate students. This informative book presents one of the most important accomplishments in Canadian history.
